Thesethreats are increasing in number and severity, and can costorganizations millions, even billions, in losses.

Predictive analytics solutions feature sophisticated techniques that enable your organization to analyze both the “structured” data found in tables and databases as well as “unstructured” text, including content found in email chains, chat forums, social networks or survey data. In contrast to rules-based analysis and detection methods, predictive analytics can identify relatively unusual behaviors, even those with subtle differences that other methods often miss.
